Westlake FFA was able to attend National FFA Convention in Indianapolis Indiana. They were fortunate enough to be able to bring a few of their past members with them so that they could get their American Degrees. The people who got their American Degrees are: Cassandra Burgess, BreAnna Goff, Shayley Jackman, Mya Herrera, Kandice Black, Corey White, Taylor Brady, Josh Austin, Charlie Clegg, Brennan Riley, and Rebecca Bell.
